Christchurch and Bournemouth Amnesty Art show recognises Alexander Dakers

March 23, 2014

The Art exhibition for Amnesty International at Christchurch Priory and Bournemouth Library has many artists showing their Human rights work.

 

The exhibition runs from the 8th March till the 5th April 2014.

The show is to raise the awareness of human rights.

 

On the opening night of the Bournemouth library Human rights show, the Mayor and Mayorness of Bournemouth opened the show to the public and artists supporting their works.

 

During the opening speech the Mayor spoke of his experience of Amnesty International and about the art show at the Norfolk Royale of Alexander Dakers.

 

Councillor Rod Cooper said "I was at another art show for Amnesty International which raised £3,000 pounds for the people of Chile. The young artist Alexander Dakers work was most interesting and he is a very talented artist. I even came back to see his work again"

 

Alexander was in the crowd of artists and was asked on the stage to say a few words.

 

He said "The art show at the Norfolk Royale was to raise money for the families who disappeared in Chile in 1973 under Aaugusto Pinochet. My grandfather was a political prisoner who was sentenced to 30 years and released in 3 years due to the hard work of Amensty International. My family are very grateful to them."

 

Alexander Dakers has an exciting art show lined up on the 6th till the 12th October this year supporting Amnesty International at the Bournemouth International Centre. It will be free entry to all.
